3.94/5 rDev +11.9%
12 oz. bottle poured into a chilled mug at Smashburger in Wantagh, N.Y.
Appearance: Pours a clear gold/copper color with a one-inch white head that recedes to film gradually. Lacing is low to moderate.
Aromas: This has an attractive nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, some faint caramel and a nice amount of floral hops. Alcohol not noticeable.
Taste: This is a good, sturdy pale ale that is well above average. Flavors follow the nose. Very crisp, clean and easy drinking. Good stuff.
Mouthfeel: Leans towards light of body, but it doesn't come across as a flaw.
Overall: Another Blue Point seasonal that is mighty good but leaves me wondering, "Why is this a seasonal?" It's pretty much a straight pale ale that would work for any season. I expect slightly wackier, more experimental things out of seasonal beers (spices, weird flavors, more obscure styles, etc.). That said, this is really good.

3.2/5 rDev -9.1%
Spring fling pours a clear copper colored body with a moderate sized, really light beige, yellow tinted head with average retention and lacing. Smells of light toasted bready malts and... thats it, maybe a hint of floral hops but I may be fooling myself.
Taste starts with bready and toasty malts, moving to light floral hops in the middle, with a caramel malt finish. Has a touch of a metallic aftertaste. Body is a bit heavier than average, carbonation is moderate, nice crisp finish.

2.58/5 rDev -26.7%
A: Copper, as stated on the bottle. Thin head and thin lacing. No haziness.
S: Smells like hops. Wasn't really expecting a pale ale since it's called a copper ale - which can also mean a malty beer. Anyways, floral and citrus hops mostly.
T: Spicy with a definite earthy tone. A tiny bit of a metallic taste on the back end.
M: Light bodied and smooth.
O: The initial taste was pretty nice but the finish killed it for me. Slightly like a macro with the metallic taste. Fix the finish on this and its a nice brew. Definitely will not buy this again combined with the fact that InBev is taking over Blue Point.

3.5/5 rDev -0.6%
12 oz bottle served in a Belgian Snifter.
Pours a clear, deep amber; a shade darker than average for style.
Flavor: good balance, if a bit higher in the malt/hop ration than usual for style.
Feel: crisp, near medium body with a semi-dry finish.
O: well balanced, slightly mild version of an APA.
